4.0l or 5.6l both have timing chains. 3 to be exact.1 primary and 2 camshaft chaines. With Nissan"s in particular if oil changes aren't done at proper intervals and wrong viscosity the primary chain tensioner goes bad causing excessive chain slack. Very costly. Depending on shop labor $800-$1000. Parts $300-$400

Well over 200,000 provided you change your oil every 3000 miles with conventional oil 5000 miles with fully synthetic oil.
